Huawei has received the 2009 IEEE Standards Association (IEEE-SA) Corporate Award in recognition of its contribution in partnering with industry operators and other vendors to ensure the success of broadband and mobile network standardization.
The IEEE-SA Corporate Award is presented annually. Past recipients include Intel, Hewlett-Packard, Sony Electronics, IBM, Motorola, Lucent, and Mentor Graphics.
“This award honors Huawei for its dedication in partnering with us and its active contributions towards mobile broadband standardization,” said W. Charlton Adams, president of IEEE-SA, in a statement.
Huawei has been an active contributor in IEEE since 2003 and has participated in IEEE 802 committees including the 802.3, 802.15, 802.17, 802.18, and 802.21. Together with operators and other vendors, Huawei has played a role in the development of the 802.16 WiMAX industry standardization process. Huawei collaborated with industry peers to develop and synchronize technologies that would ensure 802.16m meets the ITU IMT-A requirements. In addition, Huawei has led the successful authorization of 802.1Qbc (RCSI) and 802.1Qbf (Segment Protection) standards projects to address the needs and requirements of today’s changing broadband markets.
